Gene Simmons: ‘There’s a Special Place in Hell’ for Pedophile Priests
The always outspoken Gene Simmons typically doesn't hold back when it comes to speaking his mind, and he's now got another forum to do it. Simmons has penned a piece for Classic Rock magazine as part of a regular feature called "The Gospel According To ...," and in his latest entry he discusses religion and pedophilia amongst other topics.
"Pedophilia is an incurable condition -- death is the only answer, apart from sending them to the gulags of Siberia," starts Simmons [as transcribed by Team Rock], who adds, "Priests who are pedophiles are the lowest of the low. If you put on a priest's collar and use your influence to command someone to suck your c--k, there's a special place in hell for you."
In the article, he also discusses Islam, stating that he doesn't believe it to be a violent culture, and shares that he is pro-marriage, but with one addendum -- it should be for older men. He explains, "Males of all ages are actually 16-year-old horny toads."
The full commentary from Gene Simmons can be read via the current issue of Classic Rock Magazine.
